    Hey dude, I really like the still lives in post #188, and the train doodles in #203 (your lines seem much more confident in those!). Keep up the good work!

    That value study is coming along nicely, and apparently I'm Andy's underling. I really dig the lines in the post #203. I think that entdroid's right, they are much more confident. I'd love to see more.

    Pascallo: Thanks buddy.

    I've pretty much reached my technical limit on this one, I think, so I'm just gonna stop here.

    what was the last color study from? looks vaguely like a sky/cloud study, but I'm not 100% sure. anyway, i don't paint much digitally.

    my advice would be to simply spend some time with the eyedropper tool going through pictures similar to ones you want to paint.

    but open the color picker to full size so you can see exactly what hue, value and saturation you're sampling. (i kind of consider it half-cheating to use the eyedropper on a similar photo as your pallete, but i know people in the industry who do it.) if i were you and wanted to do these kinds of studies, i would spend a full 15 minutes studying a photograph with the eyedropper, then painting for another half hour without using the eyedropper. it will help you get a feel for how much saturation and what value you're really seeing.

    keep on keeping on!

    Keep going for them colours, Hunterkiller! Just go borrow all the books at your library about the subject and try to apply as much of it as you can to your art. Buy ( or even better) make a colour wheel of your own and use it whenever you paint. Go read up on Munsells colour and value theories they should clear up some of the confusion.

    You can make it, no worries mate!

    That value study turned out mega nice. As far as color goes, practice will lead to improvement. Study it intensely, make it your bitch. Are you wrking from photograph, or from life?

    Hey there! Really nice pencil drawings recently. They look very solid and confident. Ever thought about painting some of them once you scanned them in? I find it easier to paint when theres a linedrawing to guide me. Its less to think about when your painting too, you can focus more on the values and colour that way.
    About the colours. It might be useful to read a bit about the Munsell theory of colour (i think thats the right name). Anyway I think it could help you to think about subtle shades in colours. Value is also the most important thing about colour. If the values work you can pretty much get away with any colours you want in a painting, so be sure to keep a constant check on a greyscale version of the painting. Theres something Im reading about, but theres a concept of dominant colours in a painting. Is the general colour scheme warm or cool? Make sure you maintain that balance, though you can introduce colours of the other temperature, but keep the balance right so we dont get equal amounts of warms and cools.
    Hope that helps. Keep on rolling!

    you definitely on the right track man, see your improvement too, drawing drawing and drawing is the best way to learn anatomy, but I have a fun way to practice anatomy, you like basketball? I feel boring when I follow textbook all the time so sometimes I will try to find some basketball players to draw with from http://www.nba.com/photostore/ the picture is small but all those nba players have muscle and great body proportion which can be pretty useful for learning anatomy, but the way you are chines?

    ccsears: Thanks for droppin' in, man.
    Spend more time with the eyedropper - definitely. Thanks.

    Wasker: Cheers dude. I'll have a look at this Munsell.

    Pascallo: Thanks mate.

    Sedig: Colour owns my ass atm. I'm only studying colour from photos for now. Thanks.

    Bendragon: Thanks for the tips, man.
    I agree about having dominant colours/temperatures, however right now I'm focusing on just trying to see colours.
    I guess I'm kind of back to square zero on colours, still painting colours as I think they are.

    openanewworld: Thanks for dropping in, man. Thanks for the link. I've replied in your SB.

    Beedo: Hey man, nice to see more Kiwis here.

    starzik: Whoa, sneaky. You got in just as I started making replies.
    Thanks for reminding me about my Mr Knife Legs, haha. I might do a new version, I am rather fond of him. Looking back on it, the anatomy is so bad, haha.
    Thanks.


    Went to the museum to do some (much needed) sketching with a couple of friends today.
    Some dead animals.

    Wah! I'm like a ninja.

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, btw! Much appreciated.

    I don't think Mr. Knife Legs has incorrect anatomy - he's a monster, I see it as over-exaggeration. ^_^

    Edit: I'd be much excited to see you do a kick ass new version, tho!! It would make for an interesting before and after piece. Since your stunning progression from just page 2 to 8.

    Great new sketches as well.

    Oh I really like the "I has a mohawk" drawing in the last update!
    I also enjoyed this robot a lot: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1214535993
    The loose lines are really working there, and in this one too: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1214536018 although maybe some of the lines that indicate the folds could be a bit more assertive. But it has a really nice flow.
    Keep it up dude! Great work

    hey there,

    Just wanted to drop by. Man, you've been making some huge strides in your studies. Nice going with that portrait that you did in Idiot Apathy's thread. Good confidant lines in those studies also.

    Compliments, dood.

    Your lines are getting pretty.

    Also--if you have the opportunity, study colors from life too. Even if it's just whatever you can see out of the nearest window.

    Easy with the asspats, guys.

    starzik: Thanks again.

    jedininjaman: Will do. Thanks.

    entdroid: Glad you dig, thanks.

    Trashy: Thanks, man.

    Flaskpost: Thanks alot, dude.

    Sedig: It occurred to me a few times to paint what's outside my window but I was always afraid the lighting would change too quickly, but I have to give it try. Thanks.


    Getting back into anatomy stuff because I suck. Yay!
    Crap faces galore. I really feel like I'm missing out on something about drawing faces, don't feel like I'm making much progress with them...
